, ntsb officials have essentially ruled out equipment error at this point, but they still think they can learn something from the wreck, right? what are they hoping to find? >> well, they can learn something from just about every wreck. and what they're looking for, what is the communication like between the pilots and as cnn reported earlier in the week, were there cultural issues where some didn't want to raise the issues that should have been raised. as we all know, many of these aircraft functions are highly automated now. there are some who believe that pilots rely too much on that automation. and some think they may be neglecting their responsibility which is to fly the aircraft. there will be looking into as to whether or not they did that, erin. >> and if you always rely on the automation, the one time is have you done it yourself enough and used it enough. >>> and there are more problems for boeing, this is significant, the story we followed for a long time. the dreamliner, this cause fire while parked at london's heathrow airport, it caught fire, earlier this year the entire fl
